Introduction: Rubik's Cube Stand!!

Picture of Rubik's Cube Stand!!

Not only can a rubik's cube be a game, but it can also hold up pieces of paper and thin sheets of cardboard, like notes for an upcoming test or baseball cards. It's simple (dur) and actually, it's pretty efficient. Pretty sweet. eh?

Step 1: Making the Stand

Picture of Making the Stand

Turn only one side of the rubik's cube around like the picture below. Then, insert whatever you want to be displayed in the groove. You can also do this with the other side as well.

Step 2: What You Can and Can't Put in the Cube

Picture of What You Can and Can't Put in the Cube

Here's a small list of things you can put in the cube:

.Paper
.Trading cards
.Anything thinner than the above

Here's a small list of things you can't put in the cube:

.Bananas
.Grenades
.Knex
.Anything thicker than trading cards
.People

haha yours is not solved.....

j-chode! (author)dsman1952762008-07-10

and you can solve them? because i cant

dsman195276 (author)j-chode!2008-07-10

yes, i can.

bumpus (author)dsman1952762008-07-10

same...
10 was my quickest solve

bumpus (author)bumpus2008-07-10

10 minutes*

dsman195276 (author)bumpus2008-07-10

my fastest was 45 sec....

2:02 was my best...using the slowest method I know of. Don't know the name of it...start with plus design on one face, insert corners, middle edges, last face corners, last edges.

actually, i do a edited version of that. your talking about the beginner method. i do that method with some edited parts to make it go faster.

Yeah. My cousin showed me how to do it a while back and I got about as fast as you can with that method, then picked up the Revenge and forgot all about poor ol' Ruby.

thebboy (author)gannon12raiders2008-07-14

i got 56 seconds with that method. i want to learn faster methods, but i just can't find good places to learn the methods.

dsman195276 (author)thebboy2008-07-14

ya, i would not try to learn the better method unless you are serious about using it for competitions or something. you will have to learn over 50 algorithms. and then you still have to be able to know when to use each one in a millisecond.

algorithms *shudders* my fastest was 2:47 :( im slow....

dsman195276 (author)apples!!!!!2008-07-14

2 years and 47 days?

LOL

Thats not that slow, at least you CAN solve it. i forget if this is exact but 90% of people can't solve it period.

apples!!!!! (author)dsman1952762008-07-14

LOL i meant 2 MINUTES 47 SECONDS ROFL

dsman195276 (author)apples!!!!!2008-07-14

ya, i know, just joking.

apples!!!!! (author)dsman1952762008-07-14

oh LOL i thought you were serious

dsman195276 (author)apples!!!!!2008-07-14

LOL.

thebboy (author)dsman1952762008-07-14

lol, maybe it's not so bad using the easier algorithums

Kuhan (author)thebboy2008-10-01

45 seconds or so is my best. 30 is my goal for now.

ljrox123 (author)Kuhan2009-03-10

lol the word lol was used 7 times in this one string of comments alone. /\...................../\ |.......................| including these 2 times :)

gannon12raiders (author)ljrox1232009-03-10
